"Teresa, Jeff, and Dave, I am so sorry for your loss. Your dad was the inspiration of what a father is to be. He loved to talk, share stories with everyone, and i guess he never met a stranger, full of life. Everywhere you saw him or your mother they were together, I know he will be missed, but know God has a special place in heaven for me like him, Mom and I, have all of you in our prayers, Love you all, Rabbit and Mrs. Thornton"

"One of the sweetest people I?ve ever met. Great friend. My husband and I loved talking to him at McDonalds in Dawsonville. He was loved by many and will be missed."
"Louin was such a sweet person. He and Clyde were always so helpful and generous to my husband who met them at McDonalds in Dawsonville. They shared in treating each other to apple pies. We loved them both and will miss Louin and his sweet smile. Our prayers to the family! May God comfort each of you. Pat and Johnny Abercrombie "
